Every 4 or 5 years I watch this movie; I think this last viewing was number 3. And after, I check out his movies and watch them again. He only made 5 (Godfather 1 and 2, The Deer Hunter, The Conversation, Dog Day Afternoon) but those 5 movies garnered 40 Oscar nominations.

So this is a documentary with actors talking about him - working with him, being astonished by him, loving him, how much they learned from him. Little snippets are shown to demonstrate what the interviewees are describing. There are extended interviews in the special features.

John Cazale died when he was 42. His five movies and his extraordinary portrayals remain in the pantheon of Hollywood history. He died 40 years ago so younger folks may not know about him. If you are into brilliant film, you must see him.

His reputation and talent, due to his on-screen presence, is so strong that I was startled to learn he was in only five films. But, oh, what films.
